April 14, 2014, Lavington, B.C. – A proposed pellet mill in
Lavington, B.C. is one step closer to becoming a reality.

 

According to a report from the Vernon Morning Star, the
Agricultural Land Commission has approved non-farm use for the 7.1 acre
proposed site of the mill, which is a partnership between Tolko Industries and
Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group. In exchange for using the land for the pellet
mill, Tolko has agreed to put 35.8 acres of farmland in Spallumcheen into the
Agricultural Land Reserve.

This is just the first hurdle that needed to be cleared
before construction could begin on the pellet plant, to be located next to the
planer mill at the Tolko sawmill just outside of Vernon. Coldstream council
must still approve the final zoning of the proposed site, and there is
remaining work that needs to be done with the Ministry of the Environment
regarding air quality and the Ministry of Transportation regarding traffic.
